|Forum Home > health problems > brown flakes on sear of Budgie|
this is something new to the family that we are diving into after doing research.
we have noticed in the past while, brown flakes around the nostrils of our budgie, TJ. doing our research, we found out that this may be a case of mites and were recommended to sparingly (lightly) put mineral oil around the affected area, as it will kill the mites/parasites that are suppose to be the cause of this.
IF YOU TRY THIS BE CAREFUL NOT TO GET THE MINERAL OIL IN THE NOSTRILS OR EYES.
Has anybody been through this with their budgie or cockatiel? as this would be great knowledge to put on Tiels n' Gees.
your knowledge is greatly appreciated!
